We are up to our eyeballs in homeschooling here...we're still getting used to our schedule and routines, but we're getting there. I ordered the Letter of the Week curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler to do with Jojo and Jkaile together. While I'm not doing the entire curriculum with them, I'm using a lot of the print-outs and ideas. One idea that I loved was to use the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and make your own palm tree to put the letters on each week. I found the book at the library last week and I think that we'll just have to invest in one of our own because Jkaile absolutely loves this book. I don't think he'll be wanting to take it back!
So here is my 'designer' version of the Chicka Tree...it
turned out a lot better than I'd imagined! Scrapbooking paper
just makes everything better...each of the pieces are individually
backed with magnets so they can be rearranged.
Isn't that a happy grin?!
It would probably be a good idea to line the rest of the letters
with cardstock or cardboard, though, since it
appears they will be handled a lot!
